Philadelphia is a city of neighborhoods; each with its own history, culture and unique opportunities for business growth.

This policy forum will feature Harold Epps, Commerce Director for the City of Philadelphia, who will detail the Kenney Administration's plans to support increased commercial corridor growth.

A group of business and civic leaders then will guide audience members in an interactive discussion exploring how we collectively can promote prosperity and economic opportunity for every Philadelphian. Our discussion will focus on the support of current initiatives and the adoption of best practices from other cities that can work to revitalize neighborhood economies.

Thought Leaders:
Manuel Portillo, Director of Civic Engagement, Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians
Matt Bergheiser, Executive Director, University City District
Mike Innocenzo, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer , PECO
Evelyn Smalls, President & CEO, United Bank
John Grady, President, Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC)

The Roadmap for Growth is a multi-year initiative to engage Mayor Jim Kenney and City Council in a shared agenda to promote economic growth and job creation in the City of Philadelphia.
